Polygon Treehouse and United Label’s Scandinavian fairy tale-inspired adventure Röki is out today on PC, bringing with it a beautiful but dark journey full of creepy monsters and curious twists.
Check out the launch trailer:
Röki sets players off on a journey through a dark contemporary fairy tale inspired by Scandinavian folklore in the shoes of the heroine Tove, a young girl touched by magic. Players will unravel the mysteries of a mystical forest and its hidden pathways, find curious items, engage with strange creatures, and journey into Tove’s memories to directly confront her past as she attempts to save her family.
Röki is the debut game from Polygon Treehouse, headed by Tom Jones and Alex Kanaris-Sotiriou. Here’s a message from Tom and Alex about their first launch as indies:
“For our debut indie title, we wanted to depart from the ‘shooty-shooty’ games we’d made at PlayStation and make the game about family, adventure, monsters, and kindness. When we started development three years ago the world was quite a different place, and we hope the game we’ve created and its themes are now more relevant and important than ever.”

Röki is available today on PC – it’s also due to release on the Nintendo Switch some time in the future. Find out more on the official website through this link.
